Just about every time we’ve written about this show, the comments have been overwhelmingly negative; so I guess we can assume that S&A readers aren’t its biggest fans. Of course I’m generalizing. Those who do comment may not necessarily reflect the average reader’s likes and dislikes.
Regardless, whatever you might think about VH1’s Queen Latifah-produced hour-long dramedy, Single Ladies, somebody’s certainly watching, and watching religiously, because VH1 has renewed the series for a 3rd season.
According to the press release, the series has been averaging 3.2 million total viewers, up 10% from season 1, which means even more people are watching it than last season.
And they’re calling it basic cable’s #1 ad-supported regularly scheduled scripted show among women 18-49 over the course of the summer.
“Our viewers’ love affair with ‘Single Ladies’ got even bigger this year, growing significantly from its successful first season and dominating its timeslot on basic cable,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production, VH1. “We’re extremely happy that we’ll be able to give the audience another great season of the series and its honest, current take on love, dating and female friendship.“
Season 2 starred LisaRaye McCoy (Keisha), Denise Vasi (Raquel) and Charity Shea (April) as three best friends navigating the dating world in Atlanta. This season saw the exit of Stacey Dash, and the addition of Cassandra Freeman , and the aforementioned Denise Vasi as newbies to the show’s cast.
Sason 2’s finale will happen next week Monday, August 27.
Season 3 is set to premiere later in 2013.
